New Track: "With U" - Knifeplay

“With U” is one of the five tracks found on the forthcoming tape from Knifeplay, which is being released via Smoking Room. A clap of percussion and keys orchestrates a closed-bedroom, cathedral tone. Then, an expanse of semi-chaotic noise rains down in illuminating fashion. Tj Strohmer and company are part of this evening's lineup at Everybody Hits lineup, where they'll be joined by Wildhoney, Hurry, Glitterer, and Empath. (Photo by Chili)





The 7 Best Electronic Records of 2017 by Emerging NYC Artists

With an appreciation for the jubilance of pop music and the willingness to explore new sounds that NYC is known for, in 2014 the city’s electronic musicians created music that could soundtrack all-night dance parties or pensive nights alone. Beshken captured that contrast best on For Time Is The Longest Distance Between Two People. The album migrates between spacious, simmering instrumental sections and buoyant, pulsing rave-ups. Overcoats played more heavily on thumping, dance-floor anthems with their debut album YOUNG, but lyrically the duo looked further than the party scene. Overcoats’ portrait of inner emotional struggles rivals the tact of many veteran pop songwriters. The electronic genre also took influence from the indie rock world. Guerilla Toss, featured on our cover this past fall, released GT Ultra, a mish-mash of post-punk, psychedelia, and electronica that’s near impossible to accurately categorize. Covering stuttering electronica in a dream pop-inspired haze, Blood CulturesHappy Birthday balanced the danceable with the moody. Perhaps not quite fitting into the electronic realm, Sneaks made a post-punky sophomore album using almost only a drum machine, bass guitar, and vocals to craft the expertly concise and individual It’s a Myth. To be fair, that album came out before Sneak’s Eva Moolchan moved to NYC, but since the band’s relocation we’ve proudly embraced them as our own. Belonging to the Electronic realm are also two NYC records we recently blogged about: Torres' dark and mysterious Three Futures and Standing on the Corner's avant-hip hop masterpiece, and recent Deli NYC Record of the Month, Red Burns. - Cameron Carr





New Music Video: "Waiting For You" - Hurry

Every Little Thought, the forthcoming album from Hurry, will be released on February 23 via Lame-O Records. Directed by Brendan McHugh (Everyone Everywhere), the video for “Waiting For You,” which was shot at Philadelphia Horticultural Center, finds the band perusing the plants as well as performing. A pensive plot of isolation, perpetuated by persistent phone use, is both relatable, and hints at a need to change. Hurry is scheduled to perform at Everybody Hits tonight, with Wildhoney, Glitterer, Empath, and Knifeplay.





MISSIONS set forth on an inner adventure on "Stay Gone"

MISSIONS are in search for their inner purpose on "Stay Gone." The Echo Park trio immerse themselves in some musical references that may sound familiar, which range from traditional Mexican folk music to tensely-coiled post-punk, to create a sound that's truly all their own. "And if I can't find my way back / I might as well stay gone," sings Christopher Clark with strong conviction, a simple declaration that's magnified by a victorious chant that makes his absence all the more felt.

"Stay Gone" is the lead-off track off of MISSIONS' latest self-titled EP, which they recently unveiled with a release show at the Satellite last week. Here's the video for the track below. Juan Rodríguez

Buzz Alert: Torres' video of "Skim" makes The Guardian's Best of 2017 List

Torres' musical path could be used as an ideal example of what should happen to a musician who dares to move from Nashville to NYC - something she did in 2015, soon after releasing her sophomore album Sprinter. Her 2017 follow up, Three Futures, reveals a more daring artist with an uber-edgy sound that makes abundant use of synths and guitar pedals. The tracks share a claustrophobic atmosphere that seems like an unavoidable by-product of the transition from the big spaces of Music City to the "coziness" of the Big Apple. The labels took notice (the album was out on legendary 4AD), the critics applauded (Three Futures is one of the top-ranked albums on Metacritic.com with a score of 79) and the fans multiplied. And more recently, the UK newspaper The Guardian included the video for Skin (streaming below) in its Best of 2017 list. Since the release, Torres has been gigging non-stop in the US, Canada and Europe.
